The INCM fosters connections among children’s ministry leaders at the local, regional and national level. In addition to annual conferences, INCM provides a website with links to a number of resources. A page called Ministry Links features contact information for nearly two dozen children’s ministry agencies and related resources. Recordings of presentations from past Children’s Pastors Conferences are available for purchase via the website. INCM offers a coaching service and, in partnership with Protect My Ministry (PMM), a low-cost national background check service. A Jobs Board lists openings and invites postings. The free Insight E-Magazine contains articles, how-to’s, tips, international highlights, event listings and stories from children’s pastors and ministry leaders. Sponsoring partners include Group Publishing, Standard Publishing, David C. Cook Publishing, Kidzmatter, LIfeWay Kids, and the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association.
